Fluttering By

 First of all I want to wish all my Canadian friends a Happy Canada Day! I hope your day is extra special.

This card I am showing uses an Altenew mini set which features a silhouette butterfly. I made three of them to flutter across my card. And I varied the colors as I thought it was more fun. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Before adding the butterflies I creased them in the middle and then I put some thick double stick tape under each wing. I put the center creased area down on the card and then I pushed the wing’s down. Perhaps you can see better from this photo.

I hope all of you have a wonderful day. And thanks for the wonderful comments you leave me.

God bless, Verna

You Gotta Wear Shades

 Yes with the temperatures soaring into the 90’s this weekend and a few days later 100 degrees I am sure many will hit the lakes and swimming pools to try and cool off. With that thought in mind I made this card using the Altenew Spectacular Adventures layering stamp set. I hope you like my beach scene.

I stamped the design and colored it. Then I made a mask by stamping the glasses again on another sheet of paper and then cutting out the glass from that image. This made my mask which I put over the original so I could add a light brushing of gray with my blending brush. I like the way it turned out. 

I also had won some shell sequins which I thought was perfect bling for a beach scene card. I added them as well as a sentiment from that same stamp set.

I hope you who are able to visit a beach or pool remember the suntan lotions and your sunglasses. Remember you gotta wear shades. LOL

I am entering this in the Double D’s challenge.

Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments.

God bless, Verna

Gina K. Designs Marker Watercolor Technique

 A few days ago Gina featured a video showing how to use watercolor markers to make a gorgeous background with them. Then these backgrounds once they were dry were die cut with leaves and foliage and then made into cards. She showed how they were so beautiful placed on black and that the colors really popped.

Well unfortunately I had no watercolor markers but instead I did the same look by using my ink pads to add a colorful design which worked for me. Here is my card I made.

I love the look even if I didn’t have the right supplies. The die set  was the Foliage Fillers Die set and the sentiment was from the Peace Love Joy mini set. I stamped the sentiment in black ink but only cut out the Love which was in the center before adding it to my card.

Here is the link to the video. 

I hope the link works. I am frustrated with not having my computer but with my iPad I try.

 Thank for visiting. God bless, Verna

Cross and Corner Dies

 This card is made using some small dies and my Mini Blossom die cutting machine from Altenew. The yellow card stock has a shiny surface which I am hoping shows up in the photo. I think it will work for many occasions so I did not add a sentiment.

I know it is a fairly simple card but I love the dies used. The pearls I felt added a bit more elegance.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all doing well.

God bless,Verna

Stenciled Flowers

 On Altenew they showed this beautiful two step stencil called Sweet Spring Blossoms. So I placed an order and after it was delivered I made this monochrome card with it. I also used a sentiment from the Mini Happy Sentiments  set.

Thanks for making my day with your lovely comments. 
God bless, Verna
